Ben Sanders “Pot Dealer Vol.1” book

Pot Dealer Vol.1 catalogues LA-based artist Ben Sanders’s ongoing series of painted planters. We worked closely with the artist to develop the book’s contents, which includes images of more than 150 pots divided into themed chapters, an essay about the project’s genesis, and portraits of collectors who have amassed a significant number of pieces from this body of work. The book concludes with a series of illustrated pot templates and sticker sheet, allowing readers to customize their own pots. Pot Dealer is coil bound and its duplexed cover features a tip-on image, foilstamped type, and glitter sticker—a playful twist on dollar store discount stickers.
